The 1st Day is a Killer!

WOW! How intense was my first day! My roommate & I woke up at 5:00 am to get ready. Here was our day:

6:00 am Open Gym
7:00 am BREAKFAST (fruit bowl, eggs & bacon on a whole
wheat english muffin)

8:00 am Leave for Hike
(The stop sign hike ... 4.5 miles up a 11% grade ... took me 1 hour and
30 minutes)
11:15 am Choose Pool or Mountain (I chose pool)
12:45 pm LUNCH (Beet Soup, Talipia Tacos)
1:15 pm Lecture on Budget (Calories in vs Calories Out)
2:00 pm Stretching Basics
2:30 pm Circuit Training
3:30 pm Step & Pump
4:30 pm Pool
5:30 pm DINNER (Grilled Chicken Breast over Wasabi Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus
& for dessert: pineapple sorbet)

6:15 pm Lecture on Spending Your Calories Wisely
7:00 pm Lecture by Tara Costa from The Biggest Loser

Let me tell you ... I was whipped and ready for bed during the lectures! But, I did manage to stay up for them and type this blog for you all! I was excited that I made it through the Stop Sign Hike!!! That was majorly intense! I burned 4579 calories today (thanks to wearing my Polar Watch/Heartrate Monitor) and only ate 1400 calories. So, I'm off to a good start, but very sore!

The lecture by Tara was really exciting as she told us stuff about the production of the Biggest Loser and some of her trials and tribulations before, during, and after the show. She's here working out to prepare for a marathon.

More tomorrow! :)
